Pretty In Pink

Since I have not had to opportunity to create a little girls nursery for myself (due to not having a girl) I decided I would turn to a lady designer in the San Fransisco Peninsula-based area named Melodie Rubin, owner of House of Ruby. 
This is a whimsical, chic and opulent design. It is such a darling nursery that I couldn't pass up from sharing it with you. 
The beautiful yellow, pink and white color palette is not typical, but yet still feminine and shouts, "It's a girl!" The sunshine yellow wallpaper by Nina Campbell is a nice backdrop to the nursery's focal point and inspiration, a white Sutton Canopy Crib . The crib with a four poster bed look converts to a toddler bed and is dressed in crib bedding custom made from Serena and Lily Ruby Sunshine Mosaic Fabric.
An antique, hand painted side table handed down from a proud grandmother was placed next to the custom glider - arm chair by Patricia Edwards {available through the trade or Posh Tots}. A throw pillow by Trina Turk pulls the color scheme together nicely and mixes in a modern touch.
The rug diamond pattern area rug is made from 100% New Zealand Wool Berber and is by Masland Carpet Mills.
The exquisite round tufted ottoman is worth a closer look. Like the chair, it is covered in solid bubblegum pink and contrasting pastel pink dot fabrics both by Designers Guild {available through the trade at Osborne & Little}. The cord and trim add a touch of whimsy and are both from Fabricut.
I love this nursery design by House of Ruby because it has range and can easily evolve into a toddler and little girl's room. What do you love about this sweet nursery room?

If that doesn't tickle your fancy then check this next room out.
 This nursery was designed to fit the character of a 1926 home. The muted pink wall color is an ideal backdrop paired with touches of black toile.To keep with the classic style, the walls were painted pink and white furniture with traditional charm was chosen. A chandelier ties this French-Traditional theme together. The tree-branch wall graphic (by the left wall window) was found on and the birdhouse (in the top left corner of the room) was bought at a flea market and painted to add a whimsical element over the crib. A sheepskin rug softens the hardwood floor but leaves plenty of it uncovered for a classic yet sweet space. 

These are both different styles of room but are both charming and fit for a "girl." Hopefully these two choices will give you an idea or inspire you if you are planning to decorate a little girl's nursery.
